Shit y'all - check out this Scarlet>Fire with Phil doin' the Rubber Band Man. This rocks. Pretty obscure show.

Garcia is quite high. There is a lot of spacey space in this 2nd set, and the drummers call for the Dew during drums & space numerous times. Mostly Mickey, who is also continuously messing with Popick. Jer-man eventually abides with a rather nice little break-out version after a cool NFA.

It is a joke on the old song, but if you listen - his bass sounds like a big rubber band being plucked. I have never heard Phi's bass like this on any other show.

Had not seen that one but THIS is what I thought of when I heard it:

I seriously doubt Phil could have danced like that, much less worn such an awesome light blue spangly leisure suit.

He may have meant this....check out the waveforms on the bass strings.
